It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress.
I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.”
Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true.
The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed.
He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after.
But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined.
But I have no idea how this one is going to end…
This book was absolutely darling. With a small D. The story and characters are completely endearing. Charlotte is fantastic. Not only is she hilarious, but she’s also impossible not to love and the perfect compliment to Reed. At first Reed comes off as angry and very frustrating, but the more interaction he has with Charlotte the more his romantic side surfaces. I love a great slow-burn and getting to see their relationship evolve and become everything I hoped it could be was magic. Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward deliver an addictive, adorably funny romance with all the feels.
Narration was performed by Sebastian York and Lynn Barrington and I am in love! Lynn Barrington was the perfect Charlotte. She brought out her quirkiness and sass with such easy and made her even more likable! Then we have Sebastian York as Reed. I don’t think I need to say more, but I will. The man is a narrating god! He can basically do no wrong and is always music to my ears. I even liked when he brought it his British accent for a small bit. This was such a fun and quick listen because once I started listening I couldn’t stop. Ps. The epilogue. Have tissues ready. 5 Stars.
